Nick Nanton and JW Dicks
In their latest blog post, titled “The Business Trifecta and the Secret formula for Media Success”, Nick and JW reveal the secret formula for media success as well as three things you have to do to grow your business–media, marketing, and PR. The post also contains a brief video by Nick Nanton.
“A lot of people spend a ton of money on creating media. Let’s look the example using video. A business will hire a video production company. They’ll spend oodles of money to try to get a great looking video and then when the final video is delivered, they are often in a bind. They’re now out of money and they don’t have a plan for what they’re going to do with the video to get it into the hands of the people they want to see it,” write Dicks and Nanton.
“When you are soliciting someone for their business, they immediately put up their guard because people love to buy but hate the thought of being sold because they have had experiences in the past that ended negatively when they made a bad purchasing decision. So, increasingly, consumers look to third party credibility in the form of testimonials and product reviews, but there’s another form that works great too, and that’s where the secret formula comes in,” continued the authors.
“Make sure you don’t make the mistake of spending all the money you can on trying to get on TV, trying to get in the papers or trying to get on the radio without a plan for using this media in conjunction with direct media for your marketing,” write Dicks and Nanton.
